- XD-GF6900 (due to the lack of Kenkyusha's dictionaries, this one is not interesting for me)
All those 3 dictionaries claim to have 100 content items, but it seems that more than 60-70% out of that it's useless for me (at least so far).
Well, as one can imagine, the XD-GP9700 is the cheapest one (37,463￥ on Amazon Jp). GF9800 costs 46,800￥, whereas the GF10000 costs 59,800￥. Of course, as those are the start prices they are quite high, but as the GP9700 dropped 20,000￥ in one year, the same thing will probably happen with the GF10000 and GF9800.
Which one should I buy?
Now, what I want is an electronic dictionary that fulfills the criteria summarized by Clay in the topic The Ideal Electronic Dictionary. From the content point of view, the GP9700, GF9800 and GF10000 match most of these criteria.
The only extra features of these 2 new dictionaries compared to the GP9700 are (from what I could figure out with my very basic Japanese):
- a slightly bigger display (5.7" compared to the 5.5" of the GP9700) and
- relatively more content; this can be tricky though, because although the GF9800 has 100 contents, it doesn't have the big Random House En-Jp dictionary (which has 345.000 entries and 2.300 images and can be interesting form me as a non-native English speaker) - integrated in the GP9700.
If any of you have new information about these 2 new dictionaries, I will appreciate if you will post it in this topic.
